This week’s taped episode of WWE SmackDown averaged 1,921,000 viewers on Tuesday night. This is down from last week’s 2,187,000 viewers. This week’s show was taped in Glasgow, Scotland and was the first taped episode of the normally-live show since it moved to Tuesday nights this summer.
SmackDown placed #29 in the top 150 cable shows for the night, way down from last week’s #1 ranking due to stiff competition from U.S. Presidential Election coverage. The top rated hours of cable on Tuesday night were dominated by CNN and FOX News. Aside from election coverage, SmackDown was the highest rated show on cable.
